DescriptionArtist Seyni Camara is internationally renowned contemporary artist who works in clay using traditional hand-building techniques and firing methods. Her work is inspired by a personal spiritual vision, and it comments on various aspects of interpersonal and family relationships in the context of Jola culture of southern Senegal.
